What to Knit in the New Year?

Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah & Happy New Year to All!

I really have been away from my blog for a very long time & I wish that I could say that it was due to the fact that I was too busy knitting, but alas, that is not the case.

I have many WIPs and I do mean many.  I also have none completed.  Hopefully, this will come to a change in the coming new year.  At least, I can hope.

Now... the real reason for this post.  I received some really terrific gifts for Christmas.   My DD gave me a neat monogrammed back support pillow.

And, my hubby gave me the Samsung Nook.  I have the Nook Color, so this is definitely an upgrade. 

I'm really enjoying it! I can read Nook Books of course, but now, I can easily download & read Kindle books on this device.  I can also use this for my knitting patterns that I find online.  Instead of printing them, I side load them onto the Nook.

I also got a set of Addi Clicks!

The packaging.

The case.

Top portion, the cables & it even comes with a needle sizing gauge.  Nice!

Lower portion of case; the needle tips in sizes 4-15.  Nice!

Little heart pin.     

 You know that I'm just itching to knit something on these babies.  I just have to find the right pattern & the right yarn.  

I'll give you all a review of the Addi Clicks soon & Happy Knitting in the New Year!
